Container haulage

Standard container haulage

The need for container transport is growing, and the services offered have had to keep pace with demand. Standard haulage is typically the most cost-effective option, and it’s something many of the big importers and exporters use.

Container delivery

On this basis, a loaded container can be picked up from any port and delivered to any UK destination. We have coverage from all the main UK container ports. Even if your freight is unusually wide or high, specialist equipment can be used to transport your cargo.

At Containerlift, our haulage services also cover dangerous goods and bulk loads. So, your business will benefit from using a ‘Safety First’ provider, who can offer a bespoke service to suit your needs.

Side lifter ‘wait and load’ container haulage

Delivering containers to the ground for unloading is a popular option, made possible by two heavy lifting cranes fitted to the truck. In other words, the container is lifted onto the ground for loading and unloading. It’s often used by businesses where no truck loading bay is available. This is beneficial for a wide variety of cargo.

Here at Containerlift, we operate a fleet of self-loading container vehicles across the UK. That means we can offer a reliable service, no matter which port your goods are arriving at. As you don’t have to hire a separate crane to manoeuvre the container, this can be a another cost-effective option. This is also a much safer option than unloading your container from height.

Drop and collect container haulage

Drop and collect means that when one container is delivered, another one can be taken away. This is an advantage where a container can’t be loaded quickly, saving on the cost of trailer rental. As well as this, additional benefits of loading containers on the ground include convenience, flexibility and safety.
